357 Magnum is definitely adequate for deer or black bear hunting if the hunter has done a lot of practicing and can place the shot just where it needs to go.

For deer I would use a 158gr JSP, for bear I might go with a 158gr or even better a 180gr hard cast bullet.

First hand experience showed me bears can be very tough to kill once their adrenaline is up, but a well placed shot from ambush should do the trick.
